PITS Global Data Recovery Services specializes in professional data recovery services for helium-filled hard drives. These drives are relatively new and use helium gas to reduce air resistance, allowing for higher storage capacity and lower power consumption. However, they require specialized equipment and expertise to recover data in the event of a failure.

Our data recovery services are designed to help businesses and individuals recover lost data from helium hard drives. We have the expertise and equipment to recover data from these drives and offer various recovery services to meet our client’s needs.

Understanding Helium Hard Drives

A helium hard drive is a hard disk drive that uses helium gas to reduce air resistance inside the drive. Helium is less dense than air, which allows the drive to spin faster, reduces the amount of heat generated, and allows for higher storage capacity. 

Helium hard drives are hermetically sealed to prevent the gas from leaking out, and their internal components are designed to operate in a low-pressure environment. The use of helium gas in hard drives is a relatively new technology. It has been implemented by manufacturers such as Western Digital and Hitachi Global Storage Technologies to increase the efficiency and capacity of their hard drives.

Nevertheless, these storage devices are still susceptible to failures and data loss. In these situations, our engineers are ready to help.

We also understand that data loss can be a stressful and challenging experience for our clients. Therefore, we offer a range of services to help our clients recover. Our team of technicians is available to provide all the details about the recovery case throughout the process.

Our Data Recovery Process for Helium Drives

Our data recovery process for these specialized drives is designed to retrieve lost data while minimizing further damage to the drive’s internal components. The first step in our data recovery process is to evaluate the extent of the damage to the helium drive. We examine the drive’s physical components and perform a series of tests to determine the cause of data loss and the likelihood of successful data recovery. We also provide our clients with a free evaluation service to determine the cost and time required for data recovery.

Our Data Recovery Specialists

Our clean room is designed to maintain a controlled environment free from dust, pollutants, and other contaminants. Helium hard drives are extremely sensitive to environmental contaminants, which can cause further damage to the drive’s internal components. Therefore, we perform all data recovery procedures in our Class 10 clean room.

Helium hard drives have a higher storage capacity than traditional hard drives, which can make data recovery more challenging. However, our experienced technicians have the expertise and equipment required to locate and retrieve lost data.

Once we have accessed the internal components of the drive, we use specialized techniques to retrieve the lost data from the hard drive’s disks. After retrieving the lost data, we perform a series of quality control tests to ensure the data is accurate and complete. We also provide our clients with a detailed report that outlines the cause of data loss, the steps we took to recover the lost data, and recommendations for preventing future data loss.

Only We Provide Remote File Verification

Our file verification process via remote session is integral to customer satisfaction. Unlike other companies, we are the only ones offering this unique service. Following successful data recovery, we initiate a remote session that allows our customers to peruse and check their files on their own.

By completing the recovery process, we schedule a verification session with our client. This way, he can review the recovered files individually and approve them. When all the data is approved, we deliver it to our client. Our data recovery process for helium hard drives is designed to retrieve lost data while minimizing further damage to the drive’s internal components. You can start your data recovery process for a helium drive today by filling out the form. Another way to contact us is to call us directly at 855 646 0094. Our team will gladly help you recover valuable data from your helium drive.

Frequently Asked Questions

A helium hard drive is a type of hard disk drive that uses helium in its sealed compartment instead of air. Helium’s lower density than air allows the platters to spin with less drag, leading to lower power consumption, less heat, and higher storage capacities.

Yes, data can often be recovered from a failed helium hard drive. The specific method used depends on the nature of the failure, whether it’s a logical (software-related) issue or a physical (hardware-related) issue.

The fundamental principles of data recovery remain the same. However, due to the sealed, helium-filled environment, specialized equipment and techniques may be needed for physical repairs or recovery. These drives also tend to have higher data density, which might complicate data recovery processes.

While helium hard drives have a generally higher reliability than traditional air-filled hard drives, they can still fail due to reasons such as mechanical issues, firmware corruption, electrical failure, or data corruption.

Regular backups are the best way to avoid data loss. In addition, keeping your system clean, properly shutting down your computer, and protecting your system from power surges can help prevent drive failures.

The time it takes to recover data from a helium hard drive depends on the extent of the damage and the amount of data to be recovered. It can take anywhere from a few hours for simple recoveries to several days or even weeks for more complex cases.

The cost of data recovery from a helium hard drive depends on the nature of the failure and the complexity of the recovery process. It’s generally more expensive than recovery from a standard air-filled drive due to the specialized equipment and expertise required.

Success rates for data recovery from helium hard drives are generally high, especially when the recovery is handled by professionals. However, it’s important to note that not all data can be recovered in all situations. The likelihood of successful recovery decreases if the drive has been tampered with or damaged further after the initial failure.

If your helium hard drive fails, stop using it immediately to prevent further damage. If the data is important, contact a professional data recovery service. Attempting to recover the data yourself, especially if you’re not sure what you’re doing, can lead to permanent data loss.

PITS Global Data Recovery Services provided outstanding service when my SSD became corrupted. The technical team was patient and supportive, making sure I understood the recovery process. They had ... previously mentioned a verification session, and when it came to my turn, I was pleasantly surprised. Instead of just receiving screenshots of my files, I was able to connect to their server, see all of my data, and interact with it—opening files, scrolling, and controlling the screen. I don’t know of any other company that does this, but it was such a relief to see everything there and to be able to check each file myself. This is truly a five-star company!

After reading so many positive reviews about PITS, I decided to give them a shot. The experience truly was one of the best. They provided me with the evaluation results, and I chose the first ... turnaround time option since it wasn’t an emergency. However, they recovered the data a few days before the deadline, and we had a verification session on the same day to check the files. Everything I previously had on my SSD was fully recovered. Thank you, PITS, and blessings for everything you have done

I couldn't find a professional data recovery company before I contacted PITS. My mom has saved up all of her data on 1TB LaCie HDD but couldn't get access to any of the stored files anymore. So I took ... the responsibility, and started searching up for data recovery companies. The previous companies couldn't save anything from the drive but PITS Global, got back to me with 100% of the data. That's why from my point of view, they are the real ones in their field
